Pieces of the Wall

11th August 2011

I’ve never had the courage to write about Rahul Dravid. Like actually sit down and write a piece he deserves, like I’d want to. Maybe someday I will, but till then I am more than happy to read some wonderful pieces of writing on him that pop up now and then. Since I find myself going back to some of them quite often, I thought I’d make a list of some of the (in my opinion) really brilliant ones. I’m…

Adele, Writing and Test Cricket

4th August 2011

I know that I really need to be writing more often, but I suppose this is what happens if writing is a major part of your day job! Also, this is what happens when you get used to restricting yourself to 140 characters *glares at a certain micro-blogging site* Anyway what have I been doing? Listening to Adele, pretty much all day long. Her voice is so incredibly beautiful and her words seem to pull thoughts right out of my…

Today was a day for heroes. First, there was Rahul Sharad Dravid and his magnificent 104 against New Zealand. I didn’t watch any part of his innings, but kept a close eye on the score. I can’t help but admire this man, I don’t know how exactly it started, but he’s been one of the few people/things I *believe* in and no I am not saying that in a fanatical-SQUEEEE-fangirl kind of way (okay, maybe just a little bit). Then,…

Cricket Dravid Life Loves Twenty-Twenty


14th April 2010

Today, I sit here and tell myself I will write. About what I don’t know, but you’re here already reading this so I might as well say something. I’ve been watching Glee lately, and I love it. It seems plastic and superficial at first, you know high-school-drama (sigh) and cool kids and not-so-cool kids and teacher crushes and same-age-boy crushes. But then all these characters sing amazingly, fantastically, mind-blowingly well AND none of them are clear cut black and white…

Cricket Dravid Twenty-Twenty

It’s “live”, alright!

20th April 2008

As I sit here and (to put it mildly) admire a certain Royal Challengers captain, I notice that the commentators are talking to the wicketkeeper of the Mumbai Indians as the game is going on. Pardon me if I’m wrong, but wouldn’t this distract him? The poor thing would have to firstly strain to actually hear what the commentators are asking him/ saying through the noisy crowd, and then secondly he’d have to answer while keeping his eyes on the…

Look what I found..

20th October 2007

I know the article is nearly two months old but I just found it! That picture looks very familiar 🙂 And guess what? They even credited the picture to me, which is really nice! What a nice way to start the day heh.…

Dravid leaned forward and, surprised by the bounce, was hit flush on the helmet. The crashing sound was heard in the BC Roy Club House Stand and Dravid went down immediately. He lay on the ground for about five minutes and the whole team gathered around as John Gloster, the physio, attended to him. As Dravid walked back to the dressing-room, his shirt had blood stains and he was in pain. from here Dear Dravid, Please get better soon. You’re…

It all comes down to this

24th March 2007

I suppose I could sit here and write about how pathetic it is that the team that I support have failed to come together and manage to chase a total of 254. I could sit here and write about how I am running out of reasons to hold my head high and proclaim that Yes, I Am An Indian Fan. I could sit here and write about how everyone was sure about the outcome of this game. And I could…
